Since 1994 we have awarded £1.8bn to more than 13,400 projects in Midlands and East.

The Midlands and East of England is steeped in rich heritage. The region is home to vibrant cities and cultural hubs, picturesque countryside and iconic waterways. Its varied history ranges from the birthplace of William Shakespeare to the industrial Black Country.

Get inspired: see below for some of the organisations and communities we have funded.

Our grants programmes are open – if you have an idea for a project in the Midlands & East of England, we would love to hear from you.
